No, I put all stuff for the fonts in subdirs of /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local and then ran sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map=whatever
(Oh. I just realised I also have stuff in ~/Library/texmf - not good).

It seems to be doing the opposite, and ignoring stuff in the /usr/local/texlive tree

That's not checked, and I don't want the fonts in there...
